Clear Creek Trail – Grand Canyon National Park AZ

Description

The Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) conducted extensive development work in Grand Canyon National Park from 1933 to 1942. Among its trail development work, the CCC constructed the Clear Creek Trail, which connects North Kaibab Trail to Clear Creek to the east of Phantom Ranch.

The National Park Service’s CCC Walking Tour, discussing various CCC trail development projects, notes: “Even more ambitious was the nine-mile (14 km) Clear Creek Trail (1933-36) …”
